PROBST: Welcome to Survivor:

Gabon: Earth's Last Eden.

You guys ready to get started?

>> Absolutely.

>> You know it.

>> PROBST: First thing I want

you to do is introduce yourself

and say what you do.

>> What's up, everybody?

My name is Danny.

I'm a maintenance supervisor.

>> I'm Runaround Bob.

I'm a physics teacher.

>> My name is Jacquie, and I do

medical device sales.

>> My name is Ken.

I'm a professional video-game

player and a college student.

I'm number one in the world at

video games.

I'm a huge time strategist, but

I am very shy, and in the game

of Survivor, I am the underdog.

>> Hey, everybody, I'm Marcus.

I'm in the medical field.

Good to see you, Jeff.

>> PROBST: Good to see you.

>> Hi, I'm Charlie.

I'm a management consultant.

>> Matty. I'm a personal


>> Hi, Jeff.

I'm Jesusita Smith.

Everybody calls me "Susie."

I am a part-time hairdresser

and I'm a mom and a wife.

I'm a student and I'm a server.

>> My name's Randy, and I am a


I edit wedding videos for

a living, but I'm not the

most positive person in the


I'm not a big fan of marriage.

I will never get married myself.

I'm almost sure of it.

My name's Ace, and I'm a


>> Hi, everyone, my name is

Crystal, and I'm a preschool

teacher and a full-time mom.

Even though I am an Olympic

gold medalist in track and

field, I have no intention on

telling anyone what my real

occupation is.

>> My name's Kelly.

I'm an assistant manager and

buyer for one of the high-end

retail stores in Chicago.

>> Hi, everybody.

I'm Corinne and I do

pharmaceutical sales.

I'm going to be a total bitch

and I'm gonna get rid of who I

have to get rid of and I'm gonna

hurt people's feelings and I'm

gonna laugh when people cry and

I'm gonna own it.

>> I'm Dan, and for five years I

was an attorney, and I'm

currently finding myself.

>> PROBST: You're gonna have 39

days to find yourself out here,

if you're lucky.

Woman in the purple.

>> Michelle. Hi. AKA

"woman in the purple."

Um, I work in film.

I help music supervisors and


>> I'm Sugar, and I'm a retro

pin-up model.

>> I'm Gillian, and I'm a wife,

a mother, a grandmother of four,

and I'm a nurse.

>> PROBST: Okay, in Gabon it is

tradition that the elders

typically make the big

decisions and are the leaders.

In keeping with that tradition,

I need the two oldest people.

>> Bob?

I'm gray enough to be old.

>> PROBST: Okay.

>> I'm 57.

>> All right, looking good,

Bob, looking good.

>> PROBST: Nobody can beat 57.

All right, Bob, and it's

>> PROBST: Take a spot on the

mat, either one.

You guys figure it out.

Red or yellow.

>> You want that?

>> PROBST: You guys all right

with those choices?

>> Yeah.

>> PROBST: All right, we're

going to choose tribes.


Each time you make a selection,

you can choose a man or a woman.

It doesn't matter.

Obviously, these are big


You are forming your tribe, and

you're going off very little

they do, if that is what they

who chooses first.

>> Okay, ready, one, two, three?

Got her.

>> PROBST: Paper covers rock.

Bob will choose first.

And how it will work is you will

make the first choice, then you

will choose.

Then the person who was chosen

will make the next choice.

These are individual decisions.

All right, Bob, your first

choice of who you want on your


>> I'm bad at names.

Can I take Baldy?


>> PROBST: The guy with shaved


You want to tell him your name?

>> Thanks, Bob. It's Ace.

>> Nice to be able to talk to


>> I'm going to talk to you


>> The woman that was standing

next to Ace.

>> My name is Crystal.

>> Hey, Crystal. Come on over.

>> Ace, it's now your choice.

>> I don't think it would be

appropriate for a photographer

not to have a model.

Sugar, please.

>> Yes.

(contestants chuckle)

>> Awesome.

>> PROBST: Sugar joins Ace and


Crystal, your choice.

>> Suzanne, come on home.

>> I knew it.

>> You know, mamas gotta hang


>> That's right. (both laugh)

>> Okay, now we're playing

Stupid Survivor because this

makes zero sense.

Like, she clearly is not an

athletic person.

I'm so confused.

Like, don't you want to win

interesting so far.

>> Go, moms.

>> Uh, the tall farmer-looking

>> Marcus, welcome aboard.

>> I'm going to go for the

surfer dude.

He looks beefy strong.

>> Matty.

>> Hey, Matty.

>> Come on down, Matty!

>> We need some strength, Ace.

>> PROBST: What do you think,


You like this tribe?

>> Yeah. (all laugh)

>> Like he has a choice.

>> I got three moms.

>> That's right.

>> PROBST: All right, Marcus,

your choice.

>> I'll take the guy in the

>> Paloma. Come on down.

>> That's cool.

>> We gotta have a tie on our

team. Come on.

Dan, Dan. Nice to meet you.

>> My lady, Kelly.

>> Yay!

>> I'm taking the young Jay-Z

there on the end.

>> Hey, my name is Danny,

by the way, but you can call me

G-Sizzle or GC.

>> I'm gonna take the other


I think we need three blonds.

>> PROBST: Three people left.

GC, it's your choice.

>> I'm gonna pick the big homey

with all the game right there.

I don't know your name.

>> Oh, my name is Ken.

>> Ken, my bad. All right, Ken.

>> Come on over, Ken.

>> PROBST: Two choices left.

Jacquie, who do you want on

your tribe?

>> The girl in the suit.

>> Corinne.

>> PROBST: Corinne joins the

yellow tribe.

>> Welcome, Corinne.

>> PROBST: Gotta ask you,

Michelle, last one chosen.

>> Yeah.

>> PROBST: What does it feel


>> I'll learn to love you guys,


>> We'll take another hot girl

over here. That's fine.

>> Yeah!

>> Yeah! Yeah!

>> Finally!

>> PROBST: All right, we have

our two tribes.

Red tribe, you are Fang.

Here are your buffs.

Yellow, you are Kota.

>> Kota!

>> PROBST: All right, guys,

ready to get to your first


On my go, you're going to race

through the flags to the top

of the hill, where you will find

two individual immunity idols,

one for each tribe.

The first person from

each tribe to get to the top of

the hill and grab the idol will

be safe at the first Tribal


Also waiting for you at the top

of the hill are the essentials

that you're gonna start with,

including a bag of rice.

There is one more twist to this


Also waiting at the top of the

hill is an extra bag of corn

and beans.

The first entire tribe to get

all of their members across the

black line wins the corn and


Do you race out ahead selfishly

and get that idol for yourself

or do you work together, thus

ensuring food?

I'll see you at the top.

Survivors ready?


What are they gonna do?

(women laughing)

GC's out in front.

Gillian bringing up the rear.

Fang quickly falling behind.

Matty and Dan now going back to

help their tribe.

>> Gotta get 'em on the hill.

Gotta get 'em on the hill.

>> PROBST: GC first to the


>> Come on, guys.

Almost there.

Keep pushing.

>> PROBST: GC and Marcus

looking out for themselves,

going after that individual


Big move to make early in the


>> Come on.

Keep it going.

Keep it going.

(Paloma grunts)

>> PROBST: Bob helping out

Paloma for Kota.

Ace pushing her.

Marcus first to the top.

Marcus has the idol for Kota.

Here comes GC for Fang.

Michelle right on his tail.

The rest of Fang lagging behind.

For Fang, GC grabs the idol.

Michelle, the last woman

picked, is the first woman


>> Really don't think the

Fang tribe really is that smart.

I was the last one picked, and

I was the first girl up there,

so they can kiss my ass.

>> PROBST: Big question now:

which tribe gets the food?

>> Oh.

>> Come on, girl.

>> Come on, Kota!

Let's go!

Come on, guys.

>> PROBST: Kota with a big

lead heading for that food.

>> Come on, guys!

>> Let's go. Let's go.

>> PROBST: Susie, Gillian,

Crystal really struggling for


This isn't even close.

Everybody got to be across

the black line.

(Gillian grunts)


>> We got it.

>> PROBST: Kota wins the extra


Bag of corn and beans.

Matty just trying to get his

tribe to the top.

>> I think we're screwed in a

lot of physical challenges

because Gillian is going to be

a huge, huge, huge load to


She's a slow-moving human being.

>> Sorry.

>> Thank you.

>> I know I can run.

But climbing that hill was so


I had on a dress, and on top of

that, my two shoes weigh at

least ten pounds.

>> That's it.

That's it, Gillian.

>> Good job.

Come on, girl.

Almost, you're almost finished.

>> PROBST: Fang finally crosses

the finish line.

All right, so Marcus has the

idol for Kota.

GC got the idol for Fang.

Kota was the first tribe to get

everybody to the top.

You win the extra bag of corn

and beans.


>> PROBST: I got to say, Fang,

if this is any indicator,

it's going to be a long run

for you guys.

That wasn't even close.

All right, Fang, grab your

stuff, including the map, to

your new tribe home.

All right, Kota, grab all your

stuff, including that very

important extra bag of food and

head out.

(elephant trumpeting)

(monkey squawking)

>> Being this far out in nature

in the middle of this huge

jungle is definitely an

unnerving experience.

(monkey squawking)

You don't know what's around

the next tree.

It's really, really scary.

We emerged from the jungle and

we look down and we see the

flag for Kota waving in the


There's this beautiful lake,

and in front of it are a couple

of broken-down huts.


It was such a joy to see that

there was some shelter kind of


>> It's crazy.

>> It's a wild, wild place, and

you don't want to be out there

exposed to animals.

I mean, the rest of the tribe

could be sitting there and we

could be getting eaten by a

leopard and no one would know

the difference.

>> We have the canoe.

>> We have a dock.

That's awesome.

>> I love it.

I'm excited.

This place looks beautiful.


But there's really wild animals

out here.


This is really Africa.

So I'm not going to get in the

water right now, and I'm not

going to be bathing or swimming

in the lake with my tribe mates.


>> Hey, we need to work on the


>> It's about to rain.

>> I'm feeling sprinkles.

>> Okay, let's pass these out


>> We got to layer it up.

>> Okay, okay.

>> We're pretty solid.

>> Do you need more twine?

>> Just give me a piece, like, a

foot long.

>> Ugh, Bob-- he's just like the

forever Boy Scout.

>> Go, Bob.

Go, Bob.

Let's give him some moral


>> Bob, he's totally like, he

gets it together.

He's got the camp running really


>> Yeah, it's looking really

good, man.

>> He's 57 years old, and he's


>> Good job, guys.


>> Whoo!

>> I've done a lot of stuff

around camp.

To me, it's common sense.

I come from Maine.

You know, that's what we do in


>> ...exactly together.

>> ...actually use a short

piece of something.

>> It's actually turning out to

be a nice-looking bench.

>> This is the coolest stuff.

>> You're the coolest, Bob.

>> I don't like to spend money

on stuff, so I tinker.

If I don't know how to do it, I

go to the library and get the

book, look it up and go do it.

I'm going to make something

like this when I get home.

>> Bob, at what point are we

going to eat?


>> Oh, yeah?

Oh, great.

We got some huts to begin with.


>> This will work.

>> This will work.

Yeah, all right, so,

apparently, according to some

people, we sucked today.

I don't think so.

I thought we were awesome.

And I think that's what we need

to do is we've just got to keep

that awesome spirit going.

There's an African word for


It's... bucale!

(all chattering)

>> I don't know if I believe

you on that.

>> All right.


I always try and maintain a

positive attitude, and I just

hope that our tribe, the Fang

tribe, will stay positive.

This is cool.

Hey, this is awesome.

And maybe they'll forget I was

the old broad that fell up the



Hey, you guys, if anybody finds

any elephant dung, bring it


It burns well.

>> We've been here 20 minutes

and she wants elephant ...

>> Oh, elephant dung.

>> Oh.

>> Isn't that interesting?

Obviously, one has to be wary.

There are elephants around

because there was elephant dung

that we walked over.

But let's hope that they just

keep their distance.

And if we can get fire going, it

will certainly keep animals

from coming around the camp.

So you want to see the elephant


>> Not really.

>> It's very interesting.


>> You want to see my dung?

It's interesting, too.

>> They poop out the seeds that

they don't digest.

And we were wondering, maybe

there might be something edible

inside still.

>> Oh, don't even think about


>> This is our first day, and

I've come to the conclusion

that Gillian is annoying.

>> You can.

You can squeeze elephant dung

and drink it.

>> She is so busy at just

trying to look busy, and she's

not accomplishing crap.

>> You know, here.

>> I know.

>> Kick it open.

>> They're in there.

You want, you want to be the

first to try a termite?

>> You don't have to cook them,


You can just eat them.

>> You just eat them.

I found a queen one.

This is a lot of protein.

As a professional gamer, there

is a stereotype that, you know,

you're antisocial, you're a

nerd, and you sit in your

basement all the time.

And of course, I mean, girls

don't dig that.

Are you going to eat it?

Are you really going to eat it?

It'll be hot if do you that.

Everything that...

You ate it?

How'd it taste?

>> I don't know.

I just swallowed it.

>> You got some protein.

>> I just ate a termite.

>> That was hot.

>> My God, I just ate a termite!


>> Back home, I am very shy with

the girls that I like.

Last girl I kissed was

actually in high school.

That was, like, four, five years

ago, which is a long time.

That was the queen termite.

That wasn't any ordinary


>> I know, you gave me

something special there.

Like, seriously...

>> Yeah, that was my gift to


>> Thank you.

>> But being here in Gabon with

a girl that, you know, you are

attracted to is a very special

moment in life.

I mean, I am single, and she is


You never know.

A romance could start.

>> It tasted like chocolate.

(Ken mutters)

>> We've got the cantinas right


Why don't we try and do all the

other stuff, get a great camp,

and then we'll work on getting

the water and fire.

>> Um, just from personal need,

where are we going to put the


>> Do you guys want us to dig,

like, a three-foot, like, thing?

>> No, not a deep hole.

>> So then what are we doing?

Does everybody individually dig

their own hole, poop, and then

cover it up?

>> The Roman legions used to

do it...

The latrine moves.

So we cut down, we cut down a

foot, and then we cover it up.

And when it's completely flat

again, we move the latrine.

I don't want to punish you guys.

I mean, I'll go do it.

>> I don't mind doing the


I'm just confused on how to do


>> I'm the full package.

I'm not just a physical


I'm a mental competitor.

I have no fear of being the

sole survivor.

I have no fear of standing in

front of Jeff and expecting my

check for a million dollars.

What I've done at the moment is

give suggestions, let other

people carry them out, take

some of the benefit, and then

they go, "But you know who

suggested that, right?


Why don't we go into two groups

and get some really dry wood and

try and do the fire thing?

>> Ace, he's like charismatic,

and I think he has a plan.

Like, he's here to play hard.

I think the best strategy right

now is to just lay low.

>> Our best bet is probably to,

like, let Ace run the show for

a while.

My prediction is Ace is going

to get obnoxious.

Like, let's sort of let him, if

he can, dig his own grave for a


>> People say you don't need

friends here, but if you can

find a friend or someone you

trust, I think that's, like, it

means a lot.

And, like, I was like, I'll

either be playing this game

alone or find someone who I have

a connection with.

I feel that I have a special

bond with Marcus.

Ever since I saw him on the mat

and he picked me, I just felt

this connection in his deep,

blue, beautiful eyes.

>> Do you think I had any doubt

that you're a well-balanced

human being-- like, I wouldn't

be talking to you like this if I

did, so...

>> Okay, cool.

All right.

It feels good to, like, trust

one person at least.

>> Yeah.

The thing with Charlie is I

think he's attracted to me.

But, you know, I'll be honest.

Like, I don't see any romance

with Charlie and I.

I think he's a great guy.

You know, I can see that he's

handsome and smart and all

those things, and I really

can appreciate that about him,

um, but it's not really the way

I roll.

>> You're a nice guy, and you

know it.

>> Yeah, I'm chill, that's all.

I'm straight, so we're in

Eden, but there's no two Adams


(both chuckle)


>> Don't they have more bears


>> Shh, there it is!

There it is.

>> You guys hear that?

>> What is that?

>> Sounds like something



>> There it was again.

(elephant trumpeting)

>> The animals are starting to

lurk around camp.

There's an elephant 30 yards

from our house, just cruising

through the forest right behind

our little huts, so it's a

little bit frightening.

(elephant trumpeting)

>> Shh, shh, shh.


>> Ow!

>> Oh, no!

>> I think I have a small


>> See it?

>> Holy crap.

>> I was walking back to camp

and I was kneeling down to get

into our little house and I hit

my head on a sharp branch.

The second I hit my head, I felt

the blood running down my face.

I don't know how bad it is.

All I know is it's bleeding a

hell of a lot.

Nurse, do you know anything

about scratches?

>> Well, hmm.

Sorry, can't see a thing.

>> It was totally dark around


>> There I am, this nurse in the


A real clinical challenge for me

and everybody's looking at me

like I'm going to be able to do

something about it.

Yeah, right.

>> Right.

>> At the risk of being like a

mother, you've got to really

take care of yourself out here.

Just be careful; otherwise,

you're going to get hurt.

So, we've called the medical to

come and take a look at it.

>> You can use that anesthesia

any time you want.

A .22 gauge needle.

It's going to sting, Randy.

>> Break up the monotony of our

first night here.

>> You'll feel a sharp sting.

My suspicion is you're going to

need a few stitches there.

>> Just a couple?

>> Yeah, yeah.

You okay?

>> The cut is smarting a little


No need to stop; just go for it.

>> Yeah, get it done.

All right?

>> Just so I stay in the game.

I can live with the scar.

I couldn't see it.

I don't have eyes on the top of

my head.

I didn't know if it was three

stitches or 30 stitches.

I knew it was bleeding a lot.

But leaving this game is not an


And I am petrified that this

injury could take me out of the



>> You hungry?

Man, we've got some good food.

>> Yeah, we got some...

>> Like what?

>> Grasshoppers and crickets


>> Eww.

>> Who wants them?

>> You might want them.

>> I'm full.


Last night, I cut my head.

The doctors were great.

I think it only took, like, two

or three stitches.

I don't know.

And they put this huge bandage

on it.

But it's better today than it

was yesterday, which means it

will be fine in a couple days.

>> I'm supposed to be on the

frigging equator.

Where the hell is the sun?

Seriously, like, I'm just


>> Look at her.

She's miserable.

>> Think you'll be...

>> It's really, really, really

cold at night.

And I'm really bony, so I'm

sleeping bone on wood, and I

don't have any, like, cushion,

so nights are definitely the


>> You got some fire?

>> No.

>> Bone is pretty hard, isn't


>> Not hard enough to create


>> No.

>> You don't think?

I don't think that's going to


>> Trying to make fire with a


I don't think I got stuck with

the brightest bunch, that's for


I just kind of keep thinking

"Why did I get stuck with all

these people and the other

team's got all, like, these

smart, beautiful people, and I'm

stuck with these dorks?"

>> Where is the tree mail?

There it is.

Our first tree mail.

>> Let's bring it back.

>> Yeah.

>> Let's bring it back to camp.

>> Okay, let's do it.

>> Okay.

"You've had a cold, dark night

in the jungle, and your

situation is feeling dire.

Wouldn't you love some

security and a nice, big roaring


>> Yeah!

>> "Well, you'd better move

together for a chance to win the


If you're not the first to

finish, you may be the first to

leave the game."

>> All right, so we're going to

do a little combined meditation.

So, focus on something.

Hands up.

Going into this challenge,

I wanted us all to be, like,

really in sync, so I felt a

little yoga would really sort

of clean out our humors, get

our energy flowing; the chakras

would be all in tine.

And just get us excited and

motivated for this next


Just breathe into it if you feel

any sort of shudder.


>> I should be stretching too.


>> PROBST: Come on in, guys!

You guys ready to get to

today's challenge?

>> Yes.

>> Yeah.

>> Definitely.

>> PROBST: All right, for

today's challenge, six tribe

members will be belted together.

You will race through a swamp,

over a net wall, under and over

a series of hitching posts.

You'll then dig up three bags

of puzzle pieces...

and make your way to the finish

where the three remaining

tribe members will use those

pieces to solve the puzzle.

First tribe to solve the puzzle


Want to know what you're

playing for?

>> Yeah.

>> Immunity.

>> Immunity!

>> PROBST: This is the most

important thing in this game.

When you have immunity, you

cannot be voted out.

Without it, you are vulnerable.

>> Yeah.

>> PROBST: Winning tribe wins

immunity and fire in the form of



>> Yeah!

>> PROBST: Losers go to Tribal

Council, where somebody will be

the first person voted out of

this game.

Going to give you a minute to


We'll get started.

All right, so it's Paloma,

Sugar, and Bob solving the

puzzle for Kota.

For Fang, it is Susie, Gillian,

and Randy.

For immunity and fire,

survivors ready?


>> Go, Kota!

>> Go!

>> First leg is through a

leech-filled swamp.

>> Kota! Kota!

>> Neck and neck through the

Everybody's got to get over!

Corrine and Kelly are stuck.

>> PROBST: Fang now in the lead!

>> Yeah, let's go, Fang!

>> Good job, guys!

>> PROBST: Got to go under, then


Fang at the lead at the


Kota right behind.

>> Go, Fang!

I'm sorry, but I think Michelle

needs to go home, for her sake

She's just having too hard a

time, and it's not good for all

of us.

Bad vibes is just not a good

thing to have around.

I might be the naive woman

that's just walking around

thank God," um, but it may be.

Uh, I doubt it, though.

I really feel Michelle just

doesn't want to be here.

and reward.

challenge, guys.

You were right there.

It's all right.

It's all right.

Immunity once again is yours.

In addition, fishing supply.

Now you have a big decision to
